A Walk Through "Little Beirut"
lettersfrombeirut: Although my blog assignment is posted on the IFP blog page, I thought I would post some of my favorite photos from my recent walk through an area of Brooklyn known for it’s Lebanese/Middle Eastern population.

There have been orders to rape women, genocide, and the government is being far more draconian towards the protests. More people have been…

slouchingtowardsbeirut: Beirut is a city with an identity crisis. Is it Arab, Mediterranean or European? Muslim or Christian? Is it the bastion of Resistance or the stronghold of tolerance? Is it the capital of a country that only became independent in 1943 or one of the oldest continually-inhabited cities on earth that was already ancient when Athens was born? A question posed by Warren...

Great work. Roberta’s is like the Sitopia that Carolyn Steel refers to in Hungry City. You can play the Google Earth tour on your computer and take screen captures (movie), then export it as a .mov file and upload it to your blog. Do you have SnapProX? beirutbeirut: Roberta’s in Bushwick Brooklyn (called by the nytimes, “the coolest place on earth”) is a pizza place and restaurant, but...
BEIRUT or BUST: Shake Shack Map - 2nd Iteration →
Very exciting project! And yes, you’ve hit upon the precise barrier to a QR revolution - they are simply unattractive. Nothing about black and white geometry is inviting or screams awesome content coming your way if you just photograph me! Great thinking on applicability to Souk el Tayeb. Let’s try to find out from Matthew if most customers have smart phones, and if not, what other...

Great site. Can you bring in your diagram to class so we can discuss it with the class. It seems like you developed a great icon/mapping system and it would be great to have a closer look. Also, I think the meat of your mapping study could be a linkage between the vendors who sell at Foodshed and use the entrepreneurial space in Queens. I think it’s important to unpack this relationship...
You're Going Where?: Approaching the Coop →
Important site and great idea to focus on access. Let’s discuss how your observations on access can be scaled up and have implications for regulating or encouraging access to other foodsheds around the City. I’m not sure if there are food co-ops in Beirut, but there are CSA’s. Let’s ask Matthew if there are co-ops or food buying clubs. adamphillips19: As promised, here...
mdf venturing forth: FoodMap: Cafe Petisco, NYC →
Very eloquent observations. I like your focus on the moveable cafe tables. They are the base units of space making and social configurations. This is a great study that can be scaled up to look at other moveable components of city space such as street furniture in public spaces, and even in understanding grid patterns. Where will your study go from here? meredithdf: I selected a little cafe at...

theresepostel: View Andy’s Deli in a larger map If you had to pick one part of my hometown that centers on food, I’d say it is Andy’s Deli. This deli has been here since I was a child and it was always the first place I’d go to when I’d come home from college. Andy’s is reminiscent of an old time…
